Hippy Gourmet Newsletter - April'09
The flowers are blooming, the birds are
singing and although we know there's a lot of
heaviness going around these days, which of
course is impacting everyone, we'd like you
take a few moments to stop and appreciate the
abundance of what you have all around you.
Try this technique when stress and anxiety is
Embrace the simple, emphasize the moment and
celebrate the pure love of life. None of this
costs anything to do, but it enables you to
gain some perspective.
- Take three or four really deep breaths
to clear out your lungs.
- Hold the fifth breath in for a few
seconds and close your eyes.
- Think of something really happy and
positive and smile as big as you can while
thinking about what makes you happy.
- Slowly let the breath out and open
your eyes just as slowly.
